Movement and the Natural World

Join us in exploring movement concepts through the lens of nature. We will take inspiration from the natural world as we learn and practice the principles of space, time, and energy. As we improve our physical capacities (including agility, strength, flexibility, and balance), we will also explore abstraction in movement. Together, we will compose short movement studies inspired by designs and motions found in nature. Our class will culminate in an informal showing of our work to share with family, friends, and community members.

Dates: February 1 - March 29 (no class March 8)
